NIC student wins scholarship through scratch ticket design contest
North Idaho College graphic design student Jamie Murphy of Coeur d’Alene recently won a $100 scholarship from the Idaho Lottery for her winning design of a scratch ticket.
Colleges and universities from throughout the state participated in the Idaho Lottery Scratch Ticket Design Contest, submitting more than 100 entries to the Idaho Lottery.
“The tickets were judged by a team of Lottery officials and ad agency representatives on design, creativity, play style and marketability and we got some great entries,” said Tekla Bear, regional sales representative with the Idaho Lottery.

The first place winner was from Idaho State University, the second place winner was from the University of Idaho and two entrants from the University of Idaho and Idaho State University tied for third place.
In addition to the top three winners, one student was selected from each school as the recipient of a $100 scholarship.
Murphy’s “One Dollar Auditions” design was the winning entry from NIC. She also submitted an entry for a “Monkey in a Barrel” scratch ticket that earned honorable mention.
“It’s a spoof on American Idol,” Murphy said.
Murphy is a graphic design/fine arts and theater major at NIC. She was also a recent recipient of the prestigious Toni Robideaux Scholarship from the Spokane Advertising Federation.
